relentless gerd and menopause

i've suffered with gerd for the past four years. it gets worse with the onset of my period. i'm 48 and my fsh levels were high, so i started taking estrace and chaste tree berry. it alleviated the gerd for one month, then it, along with the hot flashes, came back with a vengence. the endocrinologist(dr. len wizneski) switched me to premarin --i'm still burning and flashing.
i've tried all the ppis and they make things worse. i don't have h piloriy or a hernia. i eat like a monk (no caffiene, alcohol etc), i'm thin and i exercise (which is the only time the burn goes away). i've tried everything including enzymes, aloe vera, accupuncture, high colonics, licorce dgl, cranial sacral, visual imagery. still i burn relentessly. i've started drinking one TBS. ginger juice once a day, should i switch to twice a day? I will start meditating again (TM. is there anything else you can suggest? i'm desparate enough to consider the stretta, which seems barbaric but not as barbaric as the stomach wrap.

Hi, Jody.

Your having tried everything BUT what works (until now) is not YOUR fault but can be laid directly at the door of the allopathic monopoly.

Within 3-6 months of your doing your SR (TM is what you have mentioned) certified effective by biofeedback & done at least twice a day (49% of TM practitioners actually reach the brain rhythms required) you will begin to eliminate the most basic causes of this condition (stress-effect and LGS).

Your GRJ dosage should be a tsp and not a TBS. More will not hurt but statistically will not help any more.

Let us know how you do. Your example will help others who have been duped by the monopoly.

Walt

thanks for responding. i am going to go for biofeedback training. my doctor also has doubts about tm and thinks i need a more effective stress reducer. he, like you, is convinced that is the root of my relentless gerd.
he also tested my blood for food allergies and did a comprehensive digestive stool analysis. he says this will also indicate whether i have leaky gut (which you say all gerd sufferers have).
in addition, he's been telling me since my first appt that i need to work on the emotional component (i recently went through a nasty divorce) with a good therapist. i've made an appt for next week.
i'll keep you posted. thanks
